The challenge for this month was chosen by MeetaK of and Tony. The chosen recipe was Chocolate Éclairs from Chocolate Desserts By Pierre Hermé.
I made this dessert for a family dinner at my sister's a couple weeks ago. The combination I decided to use was lemon pastry cream (modified from this recipe) with white chocolate glaze. The Pate a choux dough was veryyy sticky but I managed to pipe them pretty well using a ziplock bag. My first sheet I was kinda nervous about and I think I took them out too soon because they deflated pretty quickly. The second batch turned out much better though! The glaze was a little runny, but tasted good! I definitely do get the eggy vibe from the dough, but overall the taste was good. I'm not sure that I would make this recipe again, as I like my cream puff one better, but it was a good experience.
To the pictures! :)
